The Hotel Elliott renovation turned an historic but run-down hotel into a fashionable boutique hotel. Its restoration was a critical component of similar efforts, like the Liberty Theater across the street, that helped revitalize downtown Astoria. Listed on the National Historic Register, the lobby and interior hallways were maintained while the number of rooms were reduced to provide space for individual bathrooms and suites. The basement now has a wine bar and conference room. A Presidential suite was created on the upper floor with its own large rooftop deck overlooking the city with views of the Columbia River.
